I did a quick sweep of the board and didn't find any information pertaining to this so I thought I'd share.
I play League of Legends frequently, and an announment came up saying that a Big Ten tournament was going to be broadcast through BTN2GO and that Michigan vs. OSU was going to be on February 27th. For those that don't know, League of Legends is a fairly popular online game where teams compete for fun and/or money.
I know many people don't classify eSports as a real thing, but I thought it was cool for the Big Ten to embrace it and hand out scholarships to its participants.
In the earlier Isaiah Hole CB thread, several Bolivians surfaced to make their case for clemency. I posed the question in the Moderator Action Sticky whether a thread dedicated to clemency requests would be permitted. One of our gracious moderators indicated that the thread would be allowed, and it also may be a good recipe for humor.
Humor is the hope here, especially self-depricating humor. Plead your case. Non-Bolivians should weigh-in either in support or against clemency. Please do not get political. And please, do not re-post the exact same material that led to your Banhammer, unless it is in the context of what not to write.
Assuming we can have nice things, a thread like this might be entertaining every few years.
One final note -- I hope the moderators see it in their heart to consider at least one, if not more, application for clemency, assuming the user shows true remorse and accountability without qualification.
(fingers crossed on this one)
I know Brian et al. take a lot of crap at times for 502 errors and app issues, but I also think it's worth noting that the site is much faster over the past few days, and the app problem was fixed. Brian mentioned that bots were causing a lot of the frustration with 502 errors. So thanks to Brian, his brother, the app developer, and whoever else put time into getting some of those problems worked out. Michigan had a basketball game and rumors flying around about Tyrone Wheatley, Jr., and I haven't encountered one 502 error.
I rarely contribute to nonsense OT season but since both football and basketball seasons are over... Migos have the #1 song on Billboard. I remember a youthful energy football coach launching them into the mainstream. Everything he touches turns to gold....
You can search, download the text, images, or PDFs. It's really pretty amazing.
You can read, for example, about the proposed changes in football rules in the spring of 1895 (https://digital.bentley.umich.edu/midaily/mdp.39015071730654/535) or about the lack of enthusiasm about football in 1894 (https://digital.bentley.umich.edu/midaily/mdp.39015071730654/116):
Yesterday's football practice was in a drizzling rain, and not enough candidates were out to make up two elevens.
The old advertisements are also really neat. It's an amazing resource!
